From the Ground Up: Supporting New Ideas for a New Economy
The social impact sector is surging. New models of investment, new hybrid corporate structures, new vehicles for collaboration and a surge of new technologies are transforming the sector beneath our feet. We are on the verge of a new economy.The enthusiasm for this movement is at its clearest on the front-lines. Emerging organizations – especially those led by a new generation of social entrepreneurs – are working to build sustainable models that tackle a broad spectrum of social change challenges. But how do we strengthen the movement? How do we identify and support the most promising ventures? And how do we separate the wheat from chaff?
On March 13 we will delve into perhaps the most important startup trend of the 21stC with the Founder/Co-Founder of the Social Capital Markets Conference, GoodCapital and The Hub Bay Area, Kevin Doyle Jones.
We are grateful to the Centre for Social Innovation for co-producing this event with us and welcome Eli Malinsky, Executive Director of CSI New York City to the Fireside chat stage as a special guest this evening. Eli has been a champion of collaboration and innovation in the social impact sector for the past eight years. A deep believer in the potential of ‘everyday people’ to create social change, Eli’s work is centered on new models that unleash creativity and catalyze impact.
